If you've been reading this blog for a while, you may know that succulents are going to be used in the centerpieces and general decor of our pending nuptials (mentioned here, here, and here). Now if you can believe it - this isn't a wedding post. After spending the past weekend upstate at my parents transplanting baby succulents into bigger containers that will eventually be for the wedding, we ended up with a few extras that I decided to take back to Brooklyn with me.
|They are so leeeeetle!!|
So here is my little version...
|Potting soil, sand, succulents, rocks and a large glass vase from Ikea|
|Mix up your soil and sand 50/50|
|Plant your plants!|
...then a little sailboat...
...but decided to keep Predator. UPDATE: Tom just informed me that is Alien. Oops.
Here is our backyard. My little slice of country in the city, if you will. Even my slice of country is covered in bricks. Figures. After several summers of trying my hand at different vegetables and flowers, I've resigned to the fact that there just isn't enough sun in here to grow anything worth while.
|Tall trees and tall buildings do not make for great sunlight|
Our poor rose bush that literally grew about 4 feet in a matter of 2 weeks at the end of April once the leaves on the trees started to fill in. Gotta reach for that sun around here!
This is where you can usually find Allen.
And my girl Ella is never far from me or any of my projects.
And here is a cute slug that Poe brought in...I mean seriously, he is sooo tiny and cute! Look at those ears! (ears?) We brought him out to the rose bush after his photo shoot.
Did you get any planting done this weekend, in the back yard or in a household planter? Pull any cute, but not so welcome critters off of your pets? Keep your fingers crossed that my morning glories make it this year!
